What is ISIC?

The issuer of the card, the ISIC Association, is a non-profit organisation that aims to enable students access to discounts on offers that are related to student life. This includes language courses, public transport, concert tickets, software programmes, sporting events, clothes, cultural activities and much more. ISIC was founded in 1953 by a group of students and has been officially recognised and supported by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1968.

Benefits of ISIC

We do not want you to just keep this card as yet another ID proof in your wallet. As a student with an ISIC, you are entitled to a lot of benefits, predominantly discounts, coupons, and vouchers. Overall, there are over 150,000 benefits with up to 90 % discounts on specific products. We are listing the top benefits of having an ISIC here.

ISIC and Fintiba

When choosing the Fintiba Plus package you can get a free ISIC. The great advantage of this is that the validity of the card, which is normally only one year, is extended to three years within the package. This is due to the fact that our health insurance partner DAK Gesundheit is an official cobrand of ISIC and therefore you are entitled to receiving all the benefits of ISIC for an extended period as soon as you opt for the Fintiba Plus package.
